If you thought tissue paper was meant only for the insides of boxes and gift bags, think again! It’s time to take your ordinary wrapped gift to the next level with these easy-to-make, bright and cheery tissue paper dandelions.


Here's What You'll Need:

  1. Your wrapped gift
  2. Tissue paper
  3. Stapler
  4. Glue gun
  5. Scissors
  6. Green marker

Snip your tissue paper strip into fringe using scissors. Try to make each snip as narrow as possible, cutting only halfway through the width of your tissue paper strip.


Step 1 - Place two pieces of tissue paper together and cut into both pieces lengthwise, making a 5-inch-wide strip
Step 2 - Snip your tissue paper strip into fringe using scissors
Step 3 - cut only halfway through the width of your tissue paper strip

Once you’ve made the fringe down the length of the tissue paper strip, start rolling it up from the bottom. Pinch the base (the non-fringe side) as you roll to keep it tight and secure.


Step 3 - start rolling it up from the bottom
Step 4 - Pinch the base (the non-fringe side) as you roll to keep it tight and secure

Staple the base together near the fringe, and trim the remainder of the base so you end up with only the “flower.” Now you can probably tell that it’s starting to resemble a dandelion!


Step 5 - Staple the base together near the fringe
Step 6 - trim the remainder of the base so you end up with only the “flower

Repeat these steps. But this time around, start with a 3-inch-wide tissue paper strip to create a smaller dandelion.


Step 7 - create a smaller dandelion, repeating the steps

After both dandelions are complete, use your green marker to draw a simple stem on your wrapped gift. Tip: We recommend using a permanent marker since it dries faster!


Step 8 - use your green marker to draw a simple stem on your wrapped gift

Here’s where it all comes together. Using your glue gun, place a dot of glue on the top of each stem, then carefully attach the dandelions to the top. You did it!
